Bill now heads to Governor Baker...
State Senator Julian Cyr

State Senator Julian Cyr posted the following announcement on social media this evening:

Huge news: House and MA Senate reached agreement on a compromise short-term room occupancy/AirBnB bill — both chambers enacted the final bill this evening. It goes to the Governor for his signature. Included in the bill is a new Cape & Islands Water Protection Fund, which will provide $1 billion in state support for wastewater infrastructure on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. It’s a tremendous leap forward for environmental preservation, economic development, and housing production in the region. Proud to have led this effort with Rep. Sarah Peake with unanimous support from the entire Cape & Islands delegation. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
